Choc Chip Shortbread

I heart cookies. I'm sure my thighs don't but my belly certainly does. Just thought I'd share this recipe. If you're on a diet or counting calories I suggest you turn off your computer now.... or maybe just have one. Though I will warn you, it's very hard to stop at one!

Choc Chip Shortbread

225 grams of flour
115 grams rice flour
115grams castor sugar
225 grams butter
1/2 cup of choc chips

Sieve flour rice flour and sugar into a bowl. Rub in butter then add choc chips. Knead until a smooth paste forms. Turn onto floured board/bench. Make shapes as desired. Prick with a fork and place on cold greased tray or tray lined with baking paper.

Cook in a slow oven (150 degrees) for 45-60 minutes until pale brown. Allow to cool before dusting with icing sugar and storing in air tight container. This recipe makes about 22 shortbread men.

I have also made these using a tablespoon of vanilla essence and 1/2 cup of coconut instead of the choc chips for something a little different.
